High-scoring words of the night so far:
GAYDAR (180 points) - against Sara H. [3W, 5W]
SORTING (370 points) - against Kelly T. [two 5W, hook off RAFT to make GRAFT]
Interesting rack of the night: RIMLEONS, against Mary Lou B. (Rim Leons? Oh my, how naughty!)
Steph and Eric picked me up in the Subaru, and apparently they were discussing the seat-warmers before I got into the car. That has got to be the best feature ever, haha! Discussed a PLANET EARTH puzzle, a Mom package, Regina, Mom's grasp of English (like the "kiss and make out!" story), the parkade (they CANNOT play the "senior" card with me! :P), hockey, Jon's status update, alcohol, the location of Mike's house, the fog, and other stuff on the way over to church. Grace accidentally dented a church pole with a chair, so we joked that we could relax about being stringently anal when it came to that kind of thing! (and it was even better that a pastor's wife did it, haha!) Board games night went fine (Jenga, Settlers, Risk, Spoons, Scrabble, the Game of Life, Taboo, two versions of Cranium, Clue, dominoes, etc.) - I played Apples to Apples with Lesley, Christon, Kevin, and Steph. My sister and I were discussing Grace Kelly's death when Kevin reminded us that we had to pay attention to the game - not too often we get to have morbid discussions, dude! Learned that my sister hates poodles of any sort, heh.
Later, we each shared an important thing which happened in 2008 - we're just glad it's over now, basically. Connie told me something about needing a break, which I can understand. Danielle and Steph wanted to talk about Citrus, but were thwarted - "I'm tired!" won't really be an excuse when he gets back, haha. We admired the tiny peeled mandarin oranges, and ate a lot of crackers and cheese. Raymond asked if I'd made a Wordscraper move yet... I wasn't sure, but I have just made one now! I still beat him by a bunch of points on the STANDARD board, yikes! Everyone spent time talking about 24
- all Raymond has to do is catch up on the Sunday episodes, and he'll be FINE! Next time we have a 24
party, he'd better be there! (especially since he said he would if it was at Nate's) Johnny was going to download the Battlestar Galactica
episodes tonight, but the girls wanted him to wait a couple of days until the guys watch it and Arrested Development
at Nathan's. (I don't know if I'll be there... but the latter show sounds HILARIOUS!)
Richie touched me on the arm when he said hi, which I didn't mind. Jeremy was laughing about his latest idea: they have synchronized swimming, so why not extend that to all sports? The synchronized horse racing might be something to see! Eric wanted me to come clean about something, so I told him that I became clean a few hours ago when I took a shower! Of course I know that's not what he meant, but it's always good to have a little fun with your friends even if they're used to your somewhat abrupt manner!
Vanessa was very surprised to hear Jon has Facebook now: "That does NOT compute!" Discussed various aspects of the church building, making sushi, Stanley's week, my offer of dinner to Andrea, alternative crazy wedding scenarios (the Garden of Eden pre-Fall! lots of naked people but for fig leaves!), togas, both parents walking someone down the aisle, tracksuits at a wedding, and the snowbanks in Mike's neighborhood. We tried giving Harmony good ideas on the way home (Wreck Beach!) as future (almost-)relatives, but she wasn't convinced. It was a good night, however!
Yay. Redrum has JUST started. Right now, Corey and I are discussing this Asperger's guy
[23:57:59] Flami: the hamsterette: that reminds me of when someone told me that using "yer" on the Internet was like Ebola :P
[00:18:56] Flami: but then, he had Asperger's
[00:19:40] Corey: assburgers
[00:19:51] Corey: and he probably didn't since tons of people online say they have that and most don't
[00:20:16] Corey: and real people that have that are barely functional :P see: Sonichu
[00:20:35] Flami: yeah, that's true... who's that?
[00:22:36] Corey: Here you go.
[00:23:11] Flami: no redirect? is that a bad thing?
[00:23:41] Corey: I have no idea! that's what came up on Google
[00:24:01] Flami: the page is a link... oh my
[00:25:15] Corey: oh :P well, click that link... the link is the right one :P
[00:25:59] Flami: I did
[00:26:36] Corey: he draws all these comics, and 4chan likes to torture him
[00:26:49] Corey: he also stalks women or something
[00:27:22] Flami: that's what I'm gathering from this article.
[00:27:40] Corey: it looks like a lot of the stuff on there was removed...
[00:28:34] Flami: the article is being considered for deletion
[00:28:46] Corey: there used to be a whole bunch of stuff, like when they got him to take naked pictures of himself (by claiming to be female) and someone got him to mail his prized Sonichu necklace thing to him, which he then made a new copy of to deny sending it in the first place, so there was a detailed comparison of the new vs. old ones or something
[00:29:58] Flami: haha, oh dear.
[00:30:31] Corey: and looking over this, it looks like he's been deleting stuff from the article himself
[00:30:53] Flami: what?!
[00:32:55] Corey: ulillilila or however many lililililil things are in the middle is similar, with mental issues, but people don't tease him much since he's crazy in good ways, like exploring video games to the extent of knowing how many pixels are in everything and finding every bug in every game.. he has Youtube videos
about all of that stuff, and is making a game, and is really into whatever it is he does...
[00:33:50] Corey: his website
is insane, trying to explain what goes on in his head :P
[00:36:22] Corey: actually sometimes people do harass him, but then he makes a post on his website about it, wondering what the purpose of that phone call was, because he didn't understand it. he understands everything they say, but doesn't really get it :P he's a complete genius, but knows very little about people
[00:38:26] Flami: well, I guess that's similar to what I hear about Asperger's
[00:38:40] Corey: his Youtube videos about Bubsy 3D
(which is like the worst game ever made, yet he's played it for literally months on end) and Sonic the Hedgehog
that have voice narration are great
[00:39:30] Corey: this guy listens to music.. the same song.. on repeat for months at a time, almost always video game music. to change it up, he'll use an audio editing program to raise or lower the speed or pitch of the entire song slightly, then listen to that version for months :P
[00:40:53] Flami: oh my. even I am not that obsessive.
[00:41:31] Corey: yeah, you're a mere shadow of Ulillillia, you poser
[00:42:13] Flami: as if... I've never heard of it before now.
[00:45:10] Corey: he has a video on there now of "freeway travel" on his first vacation in 8.1 years (which seems to be because he doesn't believe in showering because he has a huge crazy formula about how that wastes water and costs his parents too much money) so his parents don't like to take him places :P
[00:45:50] Corey: he's also afraid of mirrors, I think... like, before going to a store, he'll need to map it out and plot courses that will avoid mirrors
[00:46:43] Corey: aaand.. this video seems to be nothing but ten minutes of the side of the road moving by.. and his Youtube commentary has a bunch of stuff about each mile they went past during this video and what they passed and when you'd see each mile marker :P
[00:50:25] Flami: he doesn't believe in showering?! oh dear me.
[00:51:29] Corey: "ulillillia (3 weeks ago)
The one thing that helps more than anything in this game is pausing to eliminate human limitations such as reaction time (from 280 ms to about 50 ms) and timing precision (from about 20-25 ms to just 4 ms). For starters, use pausing to help you."
[00:52:11] Corey: that's a pretty tame reply by him :P usually, he'd say something about moving three pixels per ms or something too...
[00:52:19] Corey: and yes, he has a whole section about the showering thing
[00:53:16] Corey: he thinks his parents' water bill will be extremely high if he showers regularly, and explaining it to him doesn't work because he's worked it all out already... he has like a six-page explanation explaining why it needs to be that way, but essentially it's because he doesn't want to take a shower :P
[00:53:54] Corey: he says he showers like once a month, or at least every couple weeks .... but he has this whole theory about all of it, like everything else in his life :P
[01:03:07] Flami: oh dear... I need to read that for myself... link?
[01:03:21] Corey: I have no idea, somewhere on his site..
[01:03:34] Corey: there was an SA thread about him a while back
[01:05:04] Flami: haha, go find it please.
[01:05:30] Corey: it's probably in archives by now, which you can't get to without an archives account
[01:05:47] Flami: I thought you had one of those!
[01:06:51] Corey: that's not it
, but it's people in Your Console Sucks (which is a bunch of weirdos) talking about him, so maybe something will link to it in there, I don't know
[01:07:41] Flami: the hamsterette: Hahaha, okay... last time I tried to access something on Something Awful, I got told something about an archives account.
[01:07:44] Corey: that's all I see
[01:08:00] Corey: archives is extra money
[01:12:43] Corey: goldmined stuff though (stuff deemed really good) doesn't need archive access. archives is EVERYTHING
[01:13:17] Flami: makes sense
[01:29:01] Flami: found it... just CONTROL-F "showers"
[01:29:23] Corey: I think I have his 25-hour, 40-minute sleep cycle problem :P
[01:33:45] Flami: still reading the shower bit
[01:33:48] Corey: okay, it's not six pages, but it's about 900 times longer than any explanation of shower habits needs to be :P
[01:34:47] Flami: yeah... especially his explanation of moving the knob not even an inch :P
[01:35:46] Flami: he warms up his body wash and shampoo before he uses them?! What the.
[01:36:33] Corey: oh, the six-page thing was an email reply to someone explaining that it wasn't going to cost his parents too much money to take showers, or something like that. this is the short version on his website :P
[01:37:44] Corey: email him and ask about it, he might write a book on the subject for you complete with formulas. you might even be able to ask him for a graph, but instead he might write a page or so about graphs being inefficient or something :P
[01:38:51] Flami: yeah, maybe he would.... but I dunno.
[01:44:36] Corey: he seems to reply to most things
[01:44:49] Corey: I've never emailed him, but a bunch of people did
[01:46:14] Flami: wait a minute... he has calculations on how much a job and such would affect him?!
[01:47:47] Corey: he has statistics and calculations for EVERYTHING
[01:48:44] Flami: that's what I'm getting from this...
[01:50:33] Corey: he has explanations of his whole system there somewhere
